ceives a very much lower rate as al- 
most the whole of the deferred stock

Bamc Bs those confronting us In so larg« 
a Province hk Ilrltlsh Columbia. The easl-

much the same genera! Bclieme fi» that 
adoplp.l by Uritl.ih Coliimbla-»an entirely 
preventive system, to ii. large extent, a sys- 
tem of reporting. In NVw Yorl:, -.lie policy 
adopted Is found to be having a tpily Won- 
derful iafluencc In the prevention ot In- 
fectlouH (Useasep amon.g the school children 
and the ocourronce of such slight arrRctlon.<< 
as ringworm, pediculosis, etc., ha\i: been 
).ractlcally reduced to a minimum; and 
•.vhile the system of Inspection may Inter- 
fere to a sHstht extent (»vhi\p such Inspec- 
tion Is in progveKn) With the «nrk of th,'; 
schoolroom, It Is for a few minutes only, 
and this delay 1* not to be weighed against 
the excellence of the general resuli 

p1o\ ed to represent the Crown in jiro 
ceedings agatiist persons accused oT di.-^ 
orderly conduct in connection with the 
strike at Cumberland, has returned here, 
and reports that everything has become 
rjulet at the colliery centre and that 
there Is little danger of any further out- 
breaks. Mr. .Shoehothain,. however. Is 
satisfied that the Covernment did nnl 
act any too soon in sending provincial 
police to the scene, and If there had 
been any further delay there would very 
probabl.\- have been bloodshed. 

'The company," says Mr. Shoebotham, 
"Is now building a large hotel, whicti 
will accommodate about one httndred 
men, and has also given notice to former 
enipb).\ees to vacate company houses. 
As .soon as the boarding hotise is com- 
pleted, it is the intention to import a 
number of white miners from outside 
points and to get rid altogether of those 
who have been responsible for the iire.s- 
ent trouble. Most of the men who are 
on strike have been taking no part In 
any <^f the disorder, and would gladly 
go Ijack to work If they had opportunity 
to do so, 

"Tlie prosecution of some oi tne wo- 
men and their release ui'on a promise 
that they would beha\e themselves n>r 
the future and would send their children 
back to school had an excellent effect. 
Three of the teachors are relatltres of 
men who remained at work, and for a 
while these teacherH had to be escortea 
to and from the school t)y the police. 

•'Although there is no more disorder, 
it Is nevertheless necessary to still Keei) 
the special police on the ground, and 
this Is a pretty expensive business. I 
expect, however, that the>- will ha\ e t<.i 
be kept there until the new men to be 
engaged by the company have avri\el 
anil those who are making the trouble 
have been weeded out. 

"It Is not true that tln' com|ian\ in- 
tends to put Mongolians in place of the 
white men, .\11 nf the men who will be 
l)ii>ught in 111 take the strikers' places, 
and who will be given permanent em- 
ployment, will be white merL"

was not free from Objections. The

chler to have his hoadiiuarters in Sas-

When tl.c Bill providing for extra pay 
was under discussion Mr. Oliver stated 
that 'an article which had appeared In 
the press had given an imnrcssion md 
borne out by the Bill. 

rvemtcr Borden explained that tit ■

Committee's Report 

In the mpnioranduin ' submitted by 
this committee of awaird to the pov- 
f rumen t, the work of the selection tri- 
bunal Is thus pHrtlally reviewed; 

■'in making our report and award in 
llua coinpetillon, we are fully conscious 
of the great responsibility devolving 
upon us. The opportunity Is unique, 
and Is well referrwl to in the Instruc- 
tions as 'a great one.' If we look back 
to Great Britain as an example it is 
quite impossible to gauge the influenc '. 
for good upon busy centres which the 
recent establishment of universities has 
had. So much the more is it of im- 
portanci^ that the buildings, to be erect- 
ed upon such a site as la available, and 
likely to form such a precedent, should 
be in all respects of the highest order 
of design, planned and fitted In every 
detail to meet the needs and to be 
worthy of their destiny The buildings 
will remain as a standard of the taste 
of today in British Columbia for all 
time. They are likely to be commented 
upon or criticized the world over, and 
we feel It has been Imposed upon us to 
spare no pains In reaching our conclu- 
sions and to permit no consldrrations 
of any kind to influence us otlK'r than 
those <'!' Ill,, rr,' rits of the designs .«iub- 

"Tb.' -1 rnay Justly be ^lescrlbed as 
ideal. It Is so In Its commanillng situa- 
tion upon the bay, in Us natural beaiity 
and contours, which permit the most 
to be made architecturally of Its great 
possibilities. It Is so in Us comparative 
."cciusion. so suitable to a home of 
(■"^•arnlng, and at the same lime in Its 
accessibility to the city.

"Again, while freedom is glvea to the 
conipetitors as to style, a definite aug- 
gestlon iu made as to the appropriate- 
ness of three distinctive styles, vl«: a 
free rendei'ltjg of late Tudor or Eliza- 
bethan or Scotch Baronial. .Whatever 
our Individual feelings may be on the 
question of style, we were bound to 
consider the additional claim of thoae 
competitors who Ijave, in this respect 
as well as In other points, reflected the 
spirit of the Instruct loci*- 

"A dignified aiiupiioUy Wus also asked 
for. Here again, as well as In style, 
only one competitor has disregarded 
the suggestions and ho struck out on 
a line of his own In producing a clas- 
sical scheme of a grandiose and palatial 
character. It Is quite cl«ar that the 
Instructions had in view the dignlfleci 
but simpler and often domestic lyoes 
of the older English llnlversl [!<"(, 
rather than the more grandiose modern 
A/Tierlcan examples. 

•'Wo concur In this preference. 

"With one oxcoption. In which the 
in^lnor axis of the site is made to pro- 
dominate, all of the twelve competi- 
tors roforrod to deal with tlie site as 
dotnliiated by thn north and south axis, 
. althougii in the one case of the clas.sical 
design above mentioned, the axis is 
comparatively Immaterial, Inasmuch as 
the vistas are Ignored. We have ex- 
amined In groat detail cruh of the de- 
signs submitted, and api i I • •' a itli 

some .sliort iinl^s upon each. 
Beasons for Choice 

"Aitir mature deliberation, we con- 
clude that No. XVI. has best succeed- 
ed in laying down a well devised and 
workable plin suitable to the site.

The desirability of colonial repre-

Is not universally aclm.Vtte<l by !■ a i.i-^ 
111.' public thouglit- In the 'United Kuis- 
Uom and this neej occasion no e.ur-

one, not as to principle, but aa to Its 
practicability. The I3ritl!!li peopli

iJast^ slowly in tljls matter. \Vi 

ippoee that the most sanguis, . 
vocaite of such repres«ntatlon expects 
that anything more than a beginning 
A^Ul.--ba— inad« — in tho. l mm« dJa. t a.^ fitta | ^ 
On a question! of this kind it ' 'Ht 
necessary to look ahead, and liave In 
m.ind the certain developments of tb^X^ 
future. In our ol>servatlotvs whlcBr, ftlh' 
low wc -•shall -speak only of Canada, 
l)Ut it is obvious that, if we make out 
any ca-se at all. It will be correspond- 
ingly -strengthened if the other Belf- 
governtng Dominions are taltcn i-.itu 

The present population of Canada 
is probably mori' than eiffht nilllion-s, 
Bubstanlially, let us say, on"-tlftli of 
t;ie United Kingdom, At the prestMU 
rate of increase, it may reasonably be 
expected to reach twenty m.ilUons in 
the next (luarter of a* 6?nturj', 'by 
which timi? its relative prcfportlon i > 
that of th.' I'nited Kingdom will have 
greatly incrfa-^ed. But without Kolng 
into any calculations on this point. 
wliich would of n'?ces.'5it l^md to 

indefinite rfsulla, the fact n niaina that 
la the course of twenty-flve years Can- 
tula will become a country of too h'nni 
population, too great wealth ' and too 
great development to malvo it possible 
that her foreign relations sliall be de- 
tirminc'l \>y t' ho.l\- in whose decision.^ 
slie will have no voice. In fifty years 
it may well be that the population of 
Canada will be greater t'lati that of 
the United Kingdom. In the lifetime 
of a nation decades hardly count. 
Nearly a decade and a half have passe<l 
since the British preforencs was 
adopted by the Canadian Parllftmont, 
Hhd yet it seems only ye^sterclay that 
it wa.s determined upon. It i.'' n little 
over three decades since the Xational 
Policy tariff was adopted by Canada. 
The younger men in kVinadian imbllc 
life today will have to deal with prob- 
lems arising out of changes of a mag- 
nitude which we are perhaps hardly 
able to measure toJay. Hence it is ob- 
vious that -in .detci-minlng upon any 
line of policy affecting the Kmplre we 
must look tt ' considerable distance 

I'^or this reason. «■.,.;.• in cuminnn 
with per.'iuns who liave glvrn the 
proi^osal of colonial representation on 
the Committee of Defence serious con- 
elderatlon, we see difficulties to bo en- 
countered, there seem tu hr greater 
clIfTlcuUlcs to be overcome. If -some such 
plan is not agreed ufion. History 
ti aches that. If the evolution of the 
political fabric, wlilch we call the Km- 
)lrc, lifld been arrested at every stage, 
n there seemed to be lions In l)i<' 
path, tnc progresa mad" would have 
been smaflk We concede much that 
has been aai'd"iiW respect to tbo anomal- 
ous condition that may be created, but

ih Columbia, and for that 
matter, all Canada, is Interested In the 
new University to be established in this 
Province. The acceptance of the archl- 
1. ct's plans for the building Is a matter 
of considerable moment. It marks a 
great advance towards the time when 
the University will be an accomplished 
fact. The general deslpn of the build- 
ings afford an Indication of the charac- 
ter of the institution, ns it will im- 
press visitors to this Province. We are 
not In a position as yet to examine 
(io.'ieiy the plans which have bf'en nc-' 
cepted by the Government,, but in a 
general way it Is possible to -say that 
they combine modern improvements 
with those features of a unlv.^rsity 
which have become Inseparable from 
such an Institution by tradition and 
iisai<i'. We understand that there are 
still some alterations to bo made in the 
general design before the Committee 
wliicli ajmllcati'd Is f<atl.sf ifO, atul un- 
til such time as th(.i«e are effected It is 
too early to comment on the architec- 
tural facilities that will he affordei! Jn 
British Columbia for higher education. 
It Is enough at the present time to say 
that Dr. Young, the Minister who has 
been largely responsible for inaugurat- 
ing and carrying thus far this great 
work, seem* to have brought to bear 
upon hi.s task excellent powers of dis- 
crimination, a wide knowledge or what 
such an institution shotild be, and a 
desire not only to make It equal to sim- 
ilar establishments, btit to afford an ox-

Sir— Your timely and well-merited 
editorial on the subject of birds 1" fun- 
eral Is deserving of the highest commen- 
dation, and 1 hope will result In bring- 
ing the subject to the thoughtful con- 
sideration of all classes In the commun- 
ity and to that of tlie authorities. Th« 
article in your issue of the Oth Instant 
on the "Big Horned Owl Bounty" shotild 
also be productive of Inquiry Into the 
utility of such ill-considered enact- 
ments and whilst the action of the »"' 
thoritles Is to be commended for abro- 
gating that In question, the thought 
naturally occurs as to the querftlonahle 
wisdom of offering a bounty, 1" t''^ 
first place, without first obtaining all 
pos.slble information regarding t'"* 
habits and customs of the unfortunate 
animal whose extinction Is aimed at- 
Now whilst It Is scarcely credible that 
the i-normous sum of $18,000 has been 
paid In bounties for tlie destruction of 
the horned owl, as Is asserted in your 
article. It Is to be presumed that a large 
sum has been paid. Had proper steps 
been taken to ascertain the habits of 
this bird before committing the coun- 
try to a course calculated to its ex- 
tinction. It could iTaslly have been as- 
certained that far from being injurious, 
owls generally, and that in review la 
particular, are the best friends of tlie 
farmer. This fact baa long ago been 
recognized In ^ti|||j<^ Country and in 
the United St«lS^|#liire, Instead of en- 
actments aimed at their destruction.

speak from memory, but I believe T am 
correctly stating the findings of the 
United States Government published in 
a report entltleid "Hawks and Owls of 
the United States." it is unfortunately 
the hiibit, especially amongst some 
fruit grower.?, to condemn on Insuffi- 
cient evidence, some particular bird, and 
often birds In general, and to demand 
Government assi-stance for their exter- 
mination. This was asked In the case 
of the common black old crow, whose 
character Is certainly none of the best; 
but after careful Inqiilry In this I'rovlncit 
and in the adjoining .States the evidence 
was so much In his favor that I could 
not recommend the course proposed, and 
in consequence no action was taken by 
tho then Government. When the Na- 
tural History Society undertook to Im- 
port useful birds from England an out- 
rr>- was raised by a certain number of 
people with the ro.sult that their intro- 
duction was prohibited; however, on Us 
being sliown to the Hon. Mr. Bowser 
that the birds in tiuestlon, far from be- 
ing Injurious, as had been asserted, are 
the best friends of tho fruit growers 
and agrlcuUuri.sts permission was at 
once accorded for their Introduction. 
Your article dealing with other classes 
of birds all point In the same direction; 
so let us hope that the ignorance and 
prejudice against these friends of man 
may in time disappear. I hope I have 
not been too prolix; but let the import- 
ance of the subject be my excuse.

appeared that the City of Victoria ex- 
propriated 8 feet of the |,!alntiff,-< 
property for the purpose of widening 
Fort Street. When the city workmijn 
began work they took II feet instead 6f 
8 feet, claiming that the extra foot was 
an cncroHehmenl on the the street and 
that the city did not have to pay for U. 

'The plaintiffs liave been In possession 
for hi yptrs and the wall of their 
property was built on a street lino

Oak Bay Oolf Kinks 

Sir, — I saw a reference In last week's 
newspapers to a supposed ln<-qual!ty 
of assessments at Oak Bay and citing 
in particular the Oak Bay Golf Links, 
which con.<?lst of 100 acres valued for 
njisessment purposes at $60,000 or $600 
per acre. 

The matter of an equitable assess- 
ment of these lands Is partly a ques- 
tion of law and partly one of economic 

From a legal (and ethical) point of 
vlf-w I rto not think It would be an al- 
together easy and ?.lmi)]p thing to 
the existing valuation. 

The pre.-ient owners (not the Golf 
Club, but The Gon-/ales Point Land 
f.'o.) b.iught the lands from the Pembor- 
(on Estate six years ago for $50,000. 

The purchasers are bound In their 
title not to sell any portion of the 100 
acres nor to earn therefrom more than 
1. mt rental of fi per cent on $50,000 
(ir B per cent on $60,000) per annum 
fn- fifty years or until such time as a 
g-^'f club ts unable to pay that rental 
and maintain a golf course. 

New It In impossible for the total 
share'iolders of the Gonzales Co. to 
show their stock as assets for mpre 
than $t.n.O0O, earning 5 per cent for 
fifty years. 

And I tdink that the Municipal Assee- 
sor was rl^ht In not going beyond that 
sum. for 11 he did so the validity of 
his decision would undoubtedly be chal- 
lenged and iinaslbly upset. 

If thr. leRMl question were decided 
against the Gon-nh-f, pr,int Land Co 
the Golf Club woftift be forced to sur- 
render their right of lease and the 
whole 100 acres woidd quickly be sub- 
divided Into attractive building sites to 
the grrnt benefit, cf the. Gonzales share- 

Wheth.r It would be to the profit of 
the Minilcipnllty Is the question of eco- 
nomic policy. 

Twenty years ago the Dr*>Hent Beach 
Drive from Shoal Bay to the northern 
boundary of Reeve Oliver's garden was 
laid out and built by thi Pr.ivtnclal 
fjovernnient as n scenic drive to con- 
neet Rencon Hill Park with Oak Bay 

This wn.«, I think, the ' firot road 
huilt for the sole purpose of oWnIng 
up views of our beautiful scenery and 
It callc.l for .-^ome foresight to do HUch 
a thing when neither tallyhos nor

The Breakwater 


Comer — 120 x 130, Belleville ard Montreal Streets, producing 
revenue. Until_ construction starts on the Laurel Point 
Bridge, we will sell this cheaper than anything else near it. 

Corner— 140 x 150, Montreal and Dallas Road, producing rev- 
enue. This ^ot is just inside of the assured Breakwater and 
is the key of the whole block on Dallas Road. Very choice 
for warehouse site. 


The above CORNERS are better situated than anything else 
in the James Bay District. If you're in the market for GOOD 
investments that will reap tremendous profits when work 
starts on the Breakwater, investigate them at once.

that a fixed cliarge siiould be madls ^V 
the hospital for patients, and the t'other 
that the municipality should sul>Bc\rlb'> 
to au ho.'spltal and thereby ensure ^hat 
they deslic. The i<ipa of a fixed rate 
appeared to meet with the greater faVor 
however, and It was decided that tjhe 
different ho.spltals should be commuPl- 
cated with regarding their rates for n<-i- 
mittance. When this question Is de'-- 
elded the police of the municipality wlllv 
know exactly where to send cases.

msTlBlon Court VEsats — Revision of 
the Municipal 'Vot'Cra' List for 1913 -was 
comemnced yesterday morning at the 
City Council Chamber, when the Court 
of Rc'.-islon, composed of Mayor B«ok- 
wUh and Aldermen Stewart and Porter, 
sat to hear complaints agalnut names 
on the list or applications to havs 
names added thereto. Practically no 
complaints were ■presented. A Hat of 
thirty-two names of householders who 
took the customary declarations in Oc- 
tober, but who, it was discovered later, 
had not paid the regulation $2 tax, -wa^i 
submitted by Tax Collector Oowei*, -who 
asked that these names be struck from 
off the list. The board decided to no- 
tify each Individual named to appear 
and show cause why the collector's re- 
quest should not be granted. The court 
will meet again this afternoon In tbs 
council chanvber at the City Hall.

Comer— 120 x 130, Belleville and Montreal Streets, producing 
revenue. Until construction starts on the Laurel Point 
Bridge, we will sell this cheaper .than anything else near it. 

Corner— 140 x 150, Montreal and Dallas Road, producing rev- 
enue. This lot is just inside of the assured Breakwater and 
is the key of the whole block on Dallas Road. Very choice 
for warehouse site. 


The above CORNERS are better situated than anything- else 
in the James Bay District. If you're in the market for GOOD 
investments that will reap tremendous profits when work 
starts on the Breakwater, investigate them at once.

Hospital Problem — A case or sudden 
illness taking place in Esquimalt was 
the means of raising the question of 
what the municipality of K.s^^uimalt 
shall do in order to have patients ac- 
cepted at one or other of the hospitals. 
Two suggestions were offered, "no 
that a fixed charge should be ma<fe by 
the hospital for patients, and the <'<tl\er 
that the municipality sliould sul>8c\rib" 
to an hospital and thereby ensure wihat 
they desire. The Idea of a fixed fate 
appeared to meet with the greater faVor 
however, and it was decided that t'he 
different hcspit.Tls should be oommnril- 
cated with regarding t'lclr rates for ft».1- 
mlttance. When this question Is de^ 
elded the police of the municipality will, 
know exactly where to send cases.

rilling of the building In.spector. who 
refused to pass plans submitted by Mr. 
S. B. Birds for a three-storey brick 
stores and rooming building to be 
erected by I^im Bang on Hernld street, 
near Douglas street, was considered by 
the board of supervisors Monday. ITnder 
the new building bylaw complaints 
against rullng.<» of. the inspector may be 
made to a board of supervisors com- 
posed of the chairman of the fire war- 
dens, the fire chief and city engineer. 
The building Inspector refused to issue 
a permit for the structure because the 
plans showed wooden partitions In the 
upstairs portion and wooden ceilings, 
which do not come within the building 
rCRUlBtlons. The appeal was considered 
by the supervisors, who approved of the 
stand t.-vken by the building inspector. 

mevlalon Court Meet* — Revision of 
the Municipal Voters' List for 11)13 was 
comemnced yesterday morning at the 
City Council Chaml>er, when the Court 
of Revision, composed of Mayor Beck- 
with Aldermen Stewart and Porter, 
sat to hear complaints against names 
on the list or applications to have 
names added thereto. Practically no 
complaints were presented. A list of 
thirty-two names of householders who 
took the customary declarations in Oc- 
tober, but who, it was discovered later, 
had not paid the regulation $2 tax, was 
submlttefl by Tax Collector Gowei', who 
asked that these names be struck from 
off the list. The board decided to no- 
tify each Individual named to appear 
and show cause why the collector's re- 
quest should not be granted. The court 
will meet again this afternoon In the 
council chamber at the City Hall.

is .suiisfactory to note In this connection 
Che greatly Increased value of the re- 
maining twelve acres, comprising the 
present sita of the Home. At the time 
the purchase was made there were some 
who doubted the wisdom of investing 
part of the John G. Taylor legacy for 
this purpose, and criticised the action 
of the then managers for doing so; but 
it is now, as it always has been, a 
splendid atid increasing asset, whicli no 
doubt, in due course, will be fully utiliz- 
ed for the benefit of the Orplianage. It 
is hoped that In the near future lunds 
will he available for erecting close f. 
the Home, an outdoor gymnasium, suit- 
able for children's use, and provide th • 
atipervlsion necessary to sfecure the best 
results, in development of character 
and physique.

Chartered Accountant. 
Victoria, B. C, Dtccmber iC 1912. 

In reviewing our work for the past 
year, we reallite with thankful hearts 
the loyal support ticorded us in our ad- 
mlnislration of the internal nmnage- 
nient of the Home, tJur hands have 
been upheld and our spirits strengtlien- 
ed by the kindly deeds and practical 
asoiatance rendered by friends in the 
city and from suburban ix)ints. it Is 
wltli deep tlmnUfiilMtss to the Giver of 
all that we record the satisfactory close 
n..' one year's labor ot love. Harmony 
has prevailed alons ;ill lines, and health- 
ful days have been granted, llie Inmates 
or tho Home. Under the gkllful care of 
Mrs. Kay the chlldi'in are being trained 
to face the future. ,ind riur worthy ma- 
tron Is ably secoritad In -her work by 
Miss Mose, who Jbinod tire staff in 
March. There are 52 childreij under 
tlieir care, 27 having been received dur- 
ing 1312, and 3-1 removed by guardians 
or piaced at service or in other positions. 
We highly appi'eoiate the many pleas- 
ures provided 1 ■• ":oughtful patrons 
fro m t i"n fe t o' ! .1 rs. .T. t)'. PcT n b i r - 

ton personally [iri stiitcd to tiie chil- 
dren Coronation mugs and souvenirs, 
thus implanting a germ of lojulty lii 
each youtliful lieurt. 

By the kind Invitation of Messrs. 
Curtis & Priestley, the moving pictures 
Hi the Victoria Theatre were much en- 

Mr. Mclntyrc nnd a number of friends, 
on Clirlstnias nuirning. and again on 
lOaster Monday, pnivlded the unusual 
iit-at <jf a motor ride to all the children, 
and in September free admission to the 
Kxhihitlon was given by the iJirectors 
of the Victoria Agricultural Association. 
Ctarlatmai Featlvltles 
Xever have the children spent a hap- 
pier Christmas than that of IHll. Ke- 
turnlng from the motor ride, happy and 
hungry, a bountiful Christmas dinner 
was waiting Iri the big dining room. 
The B. Wilson Co.. Limited, most gen- 
erously donated the huge turkeys, and 
at each child's pbue was a shining lialf- 
dollar the liberal «lft ot Mrs. Wm. C. 
Todd. The Christmas tree, lield on 
Thursday. December 28, was most nrtls- 
tically trimmed by Mrs. C. F. Todd, tho 
Misses McTavish and Helmcken and 
.Master Alnslie Helmcken, The children 
from tiie oldest girl and boy to the 
youpgest baby, were seated on the plat- 
form, and rendered a short programme 
Tf song an(J story, under the able direc- 
tion of Mr. Pollanl. who had generously 
given his valuable time to training them 
for some weeks previously, .Miss Parfltt 
kindly assisting at the piano. 

The Committee greatly appreciates 
tlie gifts of toys, books and gix)d cheer, 
which rounded out the purcha.-ses made 
for the tree, and enabled them to give 
generously to cacii child. Kspeclally we 
would inentloM .Mi'ssr.s. ]-'ield Brothers, 
l>. Spencer & Company, Limited, the 
Fifteen Cent. .Store, and Messrs. deem- 
ing Brothers, who sent a sai k of silver, 
each child receiving fifty cents. Tho 
visitors were .served refreshments, and 
another happy holiday come to a close; 
Pound Porty 
Thf ,\nnuHl Pound Tarty was held 
on Wednesday, .lunc !»• ""il notwith- 
standing the 'almost Impassible condi- 
tion of the approaching streets, was at 
tended by man\ friends of bygone years 
as well as man> interested new ones. 
The long tables were speedily hoeped 
witli many of tlic necessaries of llfo 
and many of the luxuries, and the treas- 
ury WHS enriched to the amount of 
1177.75. Mr. Artliur Lonfffield. always 
so willing to idace his talents at thu 
disposal of the Home, generously pro- 
vided music lor the whole afternoon, 
-adding to the succesq of the day and the 
pleasure of those present. 
Vacation Joya 
Once again Mr. arid .Mrs. S. R. Newton 
extended the liosiiltallty of their Jiomo 
to the children, who, under the care of 
the matron and lier assistant, spent a 
glorious summer day by the sea, royally 
entertained by the kind ho«t and hostess. 
In August a idi nlc at tho Oorgc Park 
was provided by eight little friends of* 
Oak Bay. By Hie considerate arrange- 
ment of .Mr. A. T. Goward, the children 
were transported by special tram to and 
from tlio park, tlius bringing to a rul- 
filment a perfect day. 

TlianksfflTlaf Say 
Thfh day w»s happily spent, and we 
v.lsn to record our gratitude to the 
many friends who gave practical demon- 
stration of the spirit of the day: Mfister 
Charles T. Du|iont, who donated the 
turkeys for the dinner; the city and 
suburbafn cburclies for harvest fruits 
and vegetables, Snd to Mrs. Suttle and 
the pupils of St. Ofrorge's School, for e 
generous gift of money, as well as a 
large box of fruit and groceries. 

The grateful appreciation of our 
Committee Is extended to Dr. Bapty, 
our honorary physician, for Ivls dlalnter- 
eated kindness to those needing hla at- 
tention. Never has he heen too busy to 
visit an invalid or proffer hla valuablo

Addltiona to Oarbaga Collection FacU- 

itlag Will Be in Operation in 

Short Time. 

\\\ a week or two ciie new sy.'item of 
mrhnge cTTltectttm introd ticgd ' t h ts ' yea r 
\vii! be In operation. It was the Inten- 
t!'>n of the health conimittec of tho 
council to divide the city into districts, 
in each of which sub-stations would be 
erected to facilitate tlie collection of 
garbage. Two of these stations have 
been completed, one on Woodlands Hoad, 
in the soutlieii.stern portion of the city, 
and the other on Queen's Avenue. The 
other stations were Intended to be erect- 
ed, one behind th.c limp.-css Hotel and 
the other on the wharf at the foot of 
Turner .Street, but the strong objection 
made by neighboring property owners 
and others to the choice of those loca- 
tions blocked tl-.o programme outlined 
by the committee, which has carried out 
this scheme only to the extent of erect- 
ing the two stations now about vo.u- 

The new structures are neat in de- 
sign, and 80 constructed that refuse 
collpctpd during the daytime will be 
htiuled away at night, each district to 
have a certain number of carts and 
terns allotted to it, the night collection 
to be made by the motor truck purchas- 
ed earlier In the season. 

The sub-station idea, which Is being 
adopted in all the leading cities of the 
Kast, will also facilitate the street 
cleaning operations in the outskirts, the 
sweepings being nlglitly deposited at 
the suti-statlons and thence hauled to 
the city garbage wharf Instead of, as at 
present, the teams requiring to be 
driven from the outskirts to the wharf, 
a method at once slow and e-vpcnsive. 

The residents In the vicinity of tlie 
new sti-itions now completed at first 
were strongly antagonistic to tlie 
scheme, hut since they have seen the 
Blructures in actual being the protests 
have ceased.

Haven't you thought of 
making a good piano one of 
your Christmas gifts thi.s 
season? Yes, a good piano 
fosls more than one cares tu 
.spend recklessly and with- 
out thought. That is one of 
the best rca.«ons for baying 
noiit; bill a Really Ciood 
f'lano. .\nd. you don't buy 
a ])iano every Christinas. 
.A. good piano lasts more 
than a lifetime. Really and 
1 1 111}', no home is complete 

without a good piano even 
though it remains silent a 
good part of the time, such 
is the character of the well- 
to-do home of today, the 
piano is at once a part of 
the proper furnishing of the 
house, a part of its social 
life, apart of the very SOUL 
of the home. Think seri- 
ously of a good piano as one 
of your better gifts this sea- 
.son. Make it THE gift!

TheHe are facts which the general pub-

Ivius. now occupied was rented les-s 
than two years ago It was far larger 
tlian was needed. Since then many al- 
terations and uddltlon.s have been made 
und, it l.s stated, th- funds of the so- 
ciety are exhausted. It is propcsed to 
build a new institution on city property 
with modern equipment and ample iinrt 
suitable ground.". Hut this cannot be 
done, and should not be done, hastily. 
^VUnl is wnntfd now is a temporary 
building which will contain a batlirooni 
nnd n inrge, light, cAmfortable room 
which can be used this winter for re- 
creation nw\ .study. .\t present these 
twenty-one children spend all t^l^. ev«'v

suffice for half a dozen children. With 
more than three times as many it i =

almost as Important, of proper super- 
vision, tt win he no wander, if, 'le- 
prlved of the opportunity of giving ex- 
pression to their natural love of fun 
and exercise, th- boys crowded together, 
become mischievous and b.^d-tempered. 
.Such a building or addition as Is nreded 
could be put up In two or three we<>ks 
and wo\ild cost a very moderate sum. 
Tn this city there are hundreds of men

Is for tho<=e wlio have pharKe of all 
these children io manage willi only 
ono bathroom and a single mom to 
serve as dining, living and playroom. 
The wlnle community is concerned In 
keeping these boyi< from straying 
again Into forbidden pathn. Rv.^ry bad 
boy or girl is a centre of contamination 
and no one knows what child may be 
exposed to the Influence he or she may 
exercise. The peoide who are engaged 
in the very difficult of training 
and uplifting the i-hildren who are 
ptaeed in the Oliildren's Aid and De- 
tention Home should have every a.s-

children themsely^.s have a riffht to

healthy development. 

Tli» ChllAreu'i Wsrd 
Pe-iide who have no chlMren, or woo 
are rortimate enough to have healthy 
little ones, have no conception of the 
great necessity for a children's ward 
in a hospital, or of the hlewlng it Is 
to the community, A vi.'dt to our own 
children's wanl will show this very 
conclusively. It Is hard to convey in 
words the sfflse of minpled pity ninl 
thankfulness with which one leaves tli'- 
sick children's room. On a recent vl.«iit 
five cases were noticed which are, 
perhaps, typical. A boy "ho wa.« look- 
ing forward to his tenth birthday was 
eagerly pushing his irtvalid chair to 
the window that he might catch a 
last gllrnnap of his father, wiio had .lust 
ben in to see him. For nine weeks 
the boy had been a prlson«r, and th • 
coming birthday must be spent in the 
hospital. The brave little man was a. 
typlioid convalescent. The cot near 
him was occupied hy a pretty little 
Rirl who wan face Rave evidence of a 
long illness and great weakness. A 
tiny doll and some scraps of silk 
showed that she had found occupation 
for the weary hours. She had been suf- 
fering from ahscesses that required 
the cDPstunt and skillful attention of a 
trained nurse.' It was evident th .• 
acute stage of the sickness was over, 
but many a grown tip woman might 
have envied the cheerful patience of the 
tiny girl. It was touching to ••• her

The Bugby Tangle 

The Victoria Kugby Union seems to 
have a bigger job on Its hands than was 
looked for in the settlement of the Dai 
Thomas case. The Welsh Club is de- 
termined tc make the Union declare 
openly whether it will abide by the rul- 
ing's of both the A. A. U. and the Rug- 
by Football Union or only those of the 
former in regard to amateurism. As the 
rulings of theise two bodies cannot clash 
H Joint subservience to the two Is quite 
possible, but if the local footballers 
can, after breaking away from the R. F. 
A., still compete as amateurs In other 
parts of the world, as some say they 
can. it certainly would be preferable to 
sever connection with the R. F. A. A 
definite decision on this point might 
lead to a clearer understanding and a 
better feeling all round. 

The Old Whssss 

Like a Jumplng-jack that old wheez; 
to the effect that the Coast League is 
going to expand and Invade Northwest- 
erii League territory, Is always spring- 
ing up when least expected. The latest 
story If) that the Coast League is after 
the Vancouver and Seattle franchises. 
Anyone tn his sober senses must see 
that that Is ridiculous. Even were It 
possible for the Coast League to got 
these franchises, what good would they 
do' It? Th«' Coast League could hot 
oi>erate In those towns without the con- 
sent of the Northwestern League, and 
thfere is no chance of that being granted.

Last evening in Vancouver the Pacific 
Coast Hoc'itey League opened Its 1112- 
'13 season, which it believed 
will produce the greatest round 
of hockey that the world has ever aeen. 
This belief Is based on the fact that 
the finest talent In the game is concen- 
trated In three teams, making it possible 
foir the managers to send on to th<» ice 
what. In each case. Is almost an all-star 
aggregation. Two of the brightest 
lights are Ernie Johnson, New West- 
minster, and Fred Taylor, Vancouver, 
better known to the hockey world as the 
"Big Moose" and the "Cyclone.'' These 
twr> come with reputations already es- 
tai>lished, but local authorities hnvc it 
thfat Prodgers, the Victoria hop«, will 
pr«ss them hard in popularity before the 
season is over.

In addition to these 
ing undiTtuklngs, the Company has con- 
structed new linos of railway In many 
directions, iind has carried out im- 
provements on Its old lines, to m. .i 
the demands of traffic, and it has 
greatly extended its llgljt and power 
aystem. This work cannot be dc- 
-scrlbed In detail, but it has Involved 
large expenditure and a vast amount of 
thought and planning and work to your 
MarisRement and also to your Dlrectorn.

''•'•S'iiiiiifct deal of publicity In 
In this country and In 
! Canada, on which you will expect me 
to give you some Information, and i to trespass on your time whilst 
I deal with them at some length. It 
has been stated that your Company 
has entered Into a contract for th.,- of power from the Western 
Canada Power Company. The facts art- 
that the General Manajrer of the West- 
ern Canada Power Company approached 
your Directors in an entirely business- 
like and courteous way, to ascertain 
whether your Comimny would be pre- 
pared to purchase power from his Com- 
p;iny. Your Directors caftie to the con- 
clusion that nlthougli the works at 
Lake Coaultlani will supply «" <bo 
power we shall need for several years 
to conic, it would be wise to secure an 
alternative supply of power from the 
Western Canada Power Company, if it 
could be obtained cheaply enough. Th" 
subject was thoroughly discussed be- 
tween tlic representatives of the two 
Companies, but unfortunately the offer 
received from tLe Western Cannda 
Power w-ts not acceptable to 
your Company, and a counter-offer put 
forward by your Directors has not been 
jiccepted by the Western Canada Power 
Company. That Is all there Is to say 
on '.hr subject. 

Caae of Point Oray 

A^"!tli regard to the long negotiations 
which Jiave been reported In the news- 
p.Tpers between the Municlv>nl author- 
ities of Vancouver and your Company, 
the facts are as follow.s. The area cov- 
ered by what is really one great city 
and which may be called Greater Van- 
couver, Is for administrative purposes 
divided into three municipalities of 
Vancouver, Point Grey and South Van- 
couver. The elty of Vancouver origin- 
ally covered a comparatively small area, 
and has been extended in recent years 
to include the areas formerly known as 
Ha.stings Townslte and District Lot 
:!0I. Your Company owns franchises 
empowering it to carry on its electr'c 
lighting and electric power business 
throughout the whole of the above- 
named municipal areas, as well as in 
many other districts, for very lona 
periods of years. Your Company also 
owns franchises authoriv.lng it to carry 
on its electric railway business for 
long periods of years throughout the 
whole of the above-mentioned areas 
and districts, with the exception of the 
old, not the extended, city of Vancouver, 
where our old franchise may be ter- 
minated l>y purchase on fair terms in 
1919. In particular wc own franchises 
In Point Grey and South Vancouver 
which have still 37 yejirs to run before 
these municipalities have their first op- 
tion to purchase. At the end of 37 
years these "options occur at Intervals 
Of 10 years in .South Vancouvei5 and 
Point Grey, and In the case of old 
Vancouver at Intervals of 5 years after 
1919 These franchises constitute the 
guarantees on the strength of which we 
have invested your money Your Di- 
rectors arc satisfied that they sufflci- 
, ently protect the future. We have not 
Inlt'ated any steps to get them changed, 
nor have we asked for further advant- 

Qvaatioa of rraaotaiaaa 

In the last few years a desire has 
sprung up In Vancouver and Point Grey 
and South Vancouver to consolidate the 
three Into one great city, thereby secur- 
ing the financial and commercial ad- 
vantages which accrue to great cities, 
I and It was thought by some people to 
I bo desirable to at tho same time con- 
solidate our railway franchises wlth|n 
the three municipalities so that we may 
operate under the same conditions and 
charge the same fares throughout the 
new city. 

We were first approached by the City 
Council of Vancouver on this subject 
some thr*e years ago, and we had ev*ry 
desire to meet the wishes of the people 
fairly and even generously, but tv- 
were compellod to brvak off negotia- 
tions becauwe we found that the op- 
portunUy was being taken to put for- 
ward a number of extravaifant demands 
upon your Company. We could not con- 
* cade theac d«nuMids, as, bad we aon*, w« ahould hav« b««n unaAtla to fin- 
^ ance, and ahouM aottially have laoded

A few weeka ago we recolvetj h writ- 
ten proposal from a Committee com- 
posed of representatives of the Coun- 
cils of the three munlclpalltk'B. The 
terms of this proposal being reasonable 
we accepted It, but were it not that we 
have d<-Blred to avoid the uppearance 
of unreasonably standing In the way 
of ihe develoi)ment of the City and the 
wishes of the cltlKcns, I do not think 
that we should have accepted it. The 
terms included the consolidation of our 
franehises In these three municli)alltles 
into one franchise for a period pf 
twenty-five years and 5-cent fares 
throughout their area, an Increase in 
tlie percentage on the railway earnings 
payable to the city, and the retention 
for five years of certain cheap tlckola, 
a prlvlle!,'c' which we liH\e hitherto 
voluntarily conceded to Ihi' iiublie, but 
which we had decided to wllhdruw in 
consecjuenee of Increnslng of 
every kind in the Railway Depiirtnunt 
in Vancouver, This . would have in- 
volved a con.slderablc financial sacri- 
fice to the Company during the next 
seven years, and we also i)roposcd to 
give up 111" last twelve years of our 
franehises in Point Grey and South 
Vancouver, and it Is thesi- li-i nvilve 
years of the franchises which will be 
by far the most valuable years to us. 
On the other hand we would have gain- 
ed a further eighteen years In the old 
City, which would have enabled us to 
better centralize on Vancouver our 
plans for iiie development of the sur- 
rounding districts, and have l., :.d 
sioirie other nd-vantnge s: ' ■ ' I t Is ■^•>' o.>t- 
qulte certain that we would liuve ac- 
tually gained a full eighteen years In 
the City, for It Is by no means certain 
that Vancouver will be able In 1919 to 
raise the very large sum of monev 
necessary to buy out the Railway and 
Its appurtenances, even within thf old 
City limits. Or if able to <lo so, will be

Company's Position 

Tho committee ri;terred to. n^preaent- 
ing the three municipalities, in d-ue 
course reported to the Vancouver City 
Council unanimou.^iy recommending 
their proposals and requesting them 
to be laid l)cfore the ratepayers, but to 
their astonishment and to that of 
everybody concerned, the Council did 
not approve of the arrangements and 
summarily rejected a motion to In- 
.strlict the City Solicitor to prepare a 
by-law for submission to the people. 
This closed the nuitter. I think the 
company Is directly the grUner, but 1 
nevertheless regret the decision of the 
Council, as ttll that iii-neflts Vancouver, 
benefits us, and thu advantages of tho 
arrangement to Uie city were. In my 
opinion, very great. A single trans- 
portation .system, giving a unlvir.-ial 
fare, over t'he whole of the untied muni- 
cipalities, would do much to consoli- 
date I'helr Interests and to help to 
establish Greater Vancouver in the eyes 
of the world as one of the greatest 
seaports of the Kinplre. Repeatedly 
during the last three years we have 
met the advances of the city more than 
half way in this matter of franchise 
consolidation, and, if we refuse to re- 
open the (luestlon again, wc cannot be 
accused of standing in the way of the 
clty> progress. As I have wald, we 
desired to meet the wis-heft of the citi- 
zen.'* and conceded a.s much as could 
he safely conceded. Our permanent 
stability as sn enterprise la entirely 
unaffected by the failure of the ne- 
gotiations. Our position, briefly. 
Is, the City of Vtinenuver can 
purchase. In 1919. our lines within 
I!\" original limits of the city (exclud 
ing our intcrurban lines) and no more. 
These lines comprise only a very small 
portion of our 280 ' miles of ralUvay. 
In the districts recently annexed to the 
city, our railway franchises cover n 
long period, and in South Vancouv.T 
ond Point <lrey our franchises, I have 
already mentioned, have at least 37 
years to run. Accordingly, if Van- 
couver exercises its option tn purchase 
in 1919. people travelling between the 
outlying suburbs and the centre of the 
city must xiay double fare. 1 think 
this is likely to be so id)Jectl(>nable to 
tlie people and so Injurious to the bu.«l- 
ncss interests of Vancouver, that the 
option to purchase in 1919 will not he 
exercised, and thai we will continue to 
operat- as nt present throughout the 
city and surrounding areas for another 
n7 years, when South Vancouver and 
Point Grey will have their first option 
to purchase. Our llgliting and powvr 
business is not touelied In any woy by 
these negotiations. 

District Well Serrad 

In the ordinary course I should closo 
my remarks at thKs point, but I feel 
that It is due to the Management and 
to the Company itself to make some 
reply to some of Che misleading state- 
ments wlilch have been publ'.nhed by 
various people In their efforts to 
cudgel us into accepting ' impossible 
terms. It lifis been alleged lyfulnst 
the company that It has not . shown 
energy and enterprise in providing for 
the requirements of the citle* and dis- 
tricts it serves, and fhat It is grind- 
ing untold wealth out of the public. 
The trulii Is that no city or district 
on the American Continent — I say this 
deliberately and with full consideration 
— ^has ever h^*" served so >plendklly 
or h«d Us Interests so m'uich advanced 
by any company aAd for so small a 

Th« pro«pertty of Vanoouv«>r has, to 
a very large extent, been create;} by 
the «nterprt(le of your company dur- 
ing the laat ten years.' 

1 will glre you facts In support of 
this, in fourteen years wc have grown 
from n^thlac to be the largest eleotri- 
oal entf»prt«o IP the BrlUgh Bmplre. 
with |MM«tbl)r one exception. W« have 
expended $»i.9«9,9M «t CMh uy Jto th« 
pre«ent, fe.nd In ordvr to raise that wim 
we have had to Iwtp Brttteh Cotamtiti^ 
and Itn motnww d9iMl|a^t1r h«f or* Kh» 

of repavlng work undertaken by th« 
city, which dislocated traffic in four 
or five places at once throughout tho 
year, and the fact that n certain firm 
were six months late In delivering car 
frames, but, in the main, it was due to 
tlie unexampled and unprecedented 
growth of buslnes.s In British Colum- 

Amazing Pxogreas 

We foresaw great pro.sp'-rlty, but we 
cou'ld not foresee that our business was 
going to increase 50 per cent in six 
months, and on the above facts I 
challenge any company in the world 
to show an equal record of effort and 

Wc have kept well ahead o-f develop- 
ments by building lines into territories 
practically unsettled when we first 
wont there, with the object of building 
up these districts. We are today giv- 
ing a splendid service on several lines 
which do not even pay operating ex- 
penses. We have at enormous cost and 
at considerable risk, built up an enter 
prise in Vancouver, of which a town 
or district three times the size need 
not h<i ashamed, and In doing so we 
have been the means of putting much 
money into the pockets of thousands 
of wage-earners and of all the land- 
owners in the district. At tho present 
•.nonient we have extensive develop- 
ment plans mapped ooit, which will 
benefit all concerned, and I would ap- 
peal to the common sense of British 
Columhian.s in their own interests to 
Hs.slsl us In every possible way In 
their power and to rigonously put down 
all such unreasoning oi)position to our 
plans, as was recently raJsed in con- 
nection with the Point Grey Franchise. 
With regard to the profits which we 
•have made, there is no secret. There 
is no method of distributing profits 
other than that of paying dividends 
and Interest on our stocks, and ooir 
accounts, audited by two well-known 
firms of accountants, are open to all. 
T have taken out the amount of cash 
Invested In your enterprise In each year 
since 1898, and the amount paid out In 
dividends and interest. Tlie figures In- 
volved are too numerous to be read out 
here, but I have had some copies 
printed for your Information. I find 
that in only one year, namely, 1902, 
have we paid more than 5 per cent on 
the caultnl actually employed. At the 
end of the past year, the amount of 
ia.-iltal lnvolve<l was $34,976,990, and 
the amount paid out, including Che 
dividend which you are asked to de- 
clare today, will be »l,4Fi7.l90. or say 
4Vi per cent on the actual cash In- 

I think that none of the Vancouver 
■gcntlerren. whose property ha>s do^ibled 
and trebled in value djiring the last 
few years largely througli the efforts 
and cntarprise of your Company, or of 
those who are lending their money on 
mortgage at from C per cent to -B per 
cent, will again say that our proiflts 
are too high. The fact is that you are 
entitled to receive a higher return on 
your money than you have In the past, 
and I think that in due course .as con- 
ditions In British Columbia become 
more settled, you will receive It. 

rigurea Bhow Orowth 

In conclusion, 1 would like to say 
that youT enterprise has been carefully 
and patlenlly built up in a conserva- 
tive and thoroughly sound way, and 
that your Investment Is in the opinion 
of the Directors an absolutely safe one, 
and that we believe the success of tho 
Company Is absolutely assured for 
many .years to come.

His Gun-Play Failing to.Secure 
Money, He Robs Bakery of 
Batch of Hs Procfuct--Goes 
to Asylum 

■Foiled in hj» awempt early yesterday 
mornlim; to «xtjatl/ai the point of a re- 
volver money from Robert Proctor erd 
Thomas Hall, bakers employed at the Gol- 
den West'BaKery, tinnier of Quadra- Street 
and rrlncfc«» Avenue, John Rlgby contented 
hlnmeir with nurlolnltiB an arniful of 
frcshly-haked ' bread, and,' backing: from 
the bakery "and keeping the others stfll 
under cover of the gun, disappeared Into 
the -night, A few nilnuten later he wa» 
arrested' on Douglu.i ytreol 'by Constuble 
Jones, who. In respoiiae 10 the call tor aid 
sent In to poUce headnuarlerg from, the 
b«k»ry, w«jit oui m tiuv iiolti-e motor patrol 
and »iopi«?cl RIgby on Ihc street on the off 
chance that he mlnht be the hold-up man. 
Rlgby calmly .•idmltted he was the bold 
robber and the tieadatufC, plus ^ revolver. 
further Identified him. TlTh gun was recog- 
nized as one reported stolon eariy Monday 
mornine: from the «econd-hand store ot 
Jacob Aaronson, Johnson Street, and con- 
sequejitly RUby's participation In two of- 
fences was ahown. 

It was shortly before 4 o'clock yesterday 
morning that Rlgby entered the bakery on 
Qiiaiira Street. Hall and I'roctor were busy 
handling a newly-bakod batch ot bread, and 

until ■ thfljK litiaxd .t.Uu. iuiuuctloji: '^Hauds 

up. I -want your money," they were un- 
aware ■ qf the presence o£ a third person. 
All they could see was A big revolver 
pointed In their direction, hold by a small- 
sl7,ed man of elderly appearance. They 
pleaded they had no money, though they 
obeyed the balance of the order and ele- 
vated their dough-coverod hands into the 

"Give me ,>!ome bread then," answered the 
robber, who proceeded to help himself, after 
which he bucked to the door, still ordering 
them to remain as they were. When tlie 
hokl-up man departed. Hall and Proctor ran 
to an lipstulrs window and saw their visi- 
tor walk along (Quadra Stre.-t and turn 
westerly along Quce'i's Avenue. They noti- 
fied the polite station, and when Rlgby 
reached Douglas Street the p»trol came up 
with hini. On the supposition that anyone 
on the street at that hour was there for no 
good purpose, (.'onstable Jones slopped Rig- 
by. with the result that the right man 
was arrested. 

The revolver carried by Rlgby answered 
to the description of one stolen from Aaron- 
son's store, Johnson Htreet, early Monday 
morning, when th<» front window was 
uniashed, and two revolvers and three 
wa(ch>.:B taken. A search of Rigby's cabin, 
on the water front, resulted In the discovery 
of these stolen articles. 

The robber's demeanor while in the police 
station conilnced the officers that he was 
not nienldlly sound. Testerday afternoon 
hi> was examined, and his insanity certified 
to by Dr. G A. H. Hall. He will bo sent 
to the asylum. 

Rlgby staled when arraigned In the police 
court yesterday morning that he has been 
a rosideni of the city for about si.x years, 
and latterly has been working for the city 
but was laid off six ■weeks ago. He w^ns, he 
said, hungry, ar.d had not the wherewithal 
to purchase food, so he thought the euslest 
method of securing money was to steal a 
rev.jlvcr and hold up someone.

This property is. as described heretofore, absolutely the finest natural playground on

water, climate, absence of pests, etc., that no other pleasure resort in America possesses.

single misrepresentation in our advertising of this property. The facts are just as stated 
—conservative, if anything— and every photograph which we represent as having been 
taken on this resort property HAS BEEN taken on this property; not under "staged" con- 
ditions eithe r, but in the month of October when the bloom of midsummer was past . 

Figure it out as an investment in health or an in- 
vestment in wealth, and you will realize that you can- 
not, afford to let this opportunity pass you by. 

The hotel, sanitorium, beach baths, sulphur spa, 
board walk, steel pier, etc., that this property \yfll 
provide the ideal setting for, will be provided inside 
three years.

cheap again. ^But you can reserve a lot in this splendid Canadian resort NOW for an ab- 
surdly easy payment , 

$10,000 lor the Best Name 

This is not exactly a prize. It is a payment for injj^enuity and orig^inality. Every purchaser will have an opporttintty to

"On the subject of Australia," said

while we wore there. 

"We vl.'slted rraotically all the cities 
and towns of importance along our 
route, and every facility afforded 
the boys to observe and understand the 
Indu.striai and cominorcJiil life of the 
Commonwealth. Wo were entertained 
at Xeweastle and «hown over the great

with Sydney's beautiful liarbor and

Btladylng the Industries of tho I>oitiin-

At 2. SO a. m.. November 17, the Woin- 
g.a Slicai Lighthouse, a struct\ire 80 
feet high, slttialed a short distance 
from the Semaphore J<?tty, near Ade- 
laide, Smith Australia, wa.s destroyed 
■by- th« sailing .ship .Dimsdale, which 
came wp the gulf and entered the Sem- 
aphore anchorage without the ser- 
vicf^s of a pilot. Both keepers on th<> 
lighthouse were drowned. When Ma- 
rine Board representatives arrived on 
t.ho scene of the disaster they found 
nothing but a few broken pile.?, Vho 
lighthouse being completely wrecked 
and submerged. The Dimsdale beers 
evidence of the collision on her stem 
and port and starboard bows. Captain 
.Tones, of the Dimsdale, offered no other 
explanation than to f&y that the light 
was burning all rlg'lit. but his ship 
took 0. sudden sheer. Ho did not think 
that he needed a pilot. This ws.s his 
first mishap In thlrty-flve years. 

The lighthouse deatroytxl cast JlOO,- 
000. The liglU in It cost $17,500. It 
was built in 1900-1001, and stood In 
IS feet of wateir at low tide. It flaslied 
every thirty s<'Conds and was visible 
for seventeen miles. When the (bodies 
of the keeper and Ills assistant were 
recovered It was found that th'cy had 
been killed by tli-e crush of fh* col- 

Secrecy In Dockyard. 

Historic Cockatoo Island had been 
transformed into the first naval dock- 
yard of the Australian Commonwealth. 
Around Its shores is a posse of consta- 
bles, whose vigilant lookout for all In- 
truders of all grades is as keen as 
that observed at Devonport, Ports- 
mouth, Kiel, Cherbourg, and other 
large dockyards.

struction of battle-cruisers In the near 
future. Most of the men employed 
are Australians who were specially 
trained aomo years a*o In the best 
naval construction shops In England. 
The strictest aa»p«rvlslon Is maintained 
and great secrecy characterizes all tlie 
work done there. . Cockatoo Island di-

One Time Famous Sailing Ship . 
Has Served Its Time— Was 
Last in These Waters Ihrte 
Years Ago 

One by one the ojd time sailing craft 
are dl.^appearing from the fleet of lun:- 
ber carriers which did so much to mak" 
the Douglas Fir famous in the lumber 
markets of the world. The wind iiro-' 
pelled vessels are giving place to those 
using steam for the latter not only 
save time and money in their delive;rle."<, 
but also provide, room for the greatly 
enhanced cargoes which must now b-j 
taken to make a profitable voyage. 

Til* old sailing ship Abner Coburn. 
one of the crack windjammers twenty- 
flve years ago, and which has loaded 
many times at different British Colum- 
bia ports will soon sail from San Fran- 
cisco for Puget Sound and may neve,- 
again be seen unde.r sail. She has been 
sold and will bo converted into a barge 
and towed between the Sound and Alas- 
kan points. 

The Coburn Is associated with many 
of the best-known characters In North 
Pacific shipping. Many of the old tim- 
ers were onc-e employed on this fanioun 
ship when the Coburn came around the 
Horn twenty-four years ago in charge 
of the famous old skipper Captain Eve 
Nichols. He was lost overboard that 
trip, and Dewey Nichols, son of the 
<lead skipper, who commanded the Co- 
burn the next trip and also died bv'fore 
the end of the voyage. 

During the first voyage while round- 
ing the "Horn" a huge wave from tho 
ITort Bide swept nine of the crew Into 
the sea on the starboard side. All of 
them clung to the brace upon which 
they had been hauling and the next sea 
swept all of them back to .safety. 

The last time the Abner Coburn was 
in these waters was three years ago 
when she came norfh lo load th<> cargo 
of the wrecked ship William H. Smith. 
The Smith loaded lumber at Chomalnu.n 
fo r&outh Africa and encountered a 
tremendous gale when half way to Hon- 
olulu, losing her foremast. The Smith 
waa p* ^jSliiid tender and her seas started 
prdfl^ing up, so Captain Murray In 
charge of the craft headed back for the 
Columbia River, arriving in sight of 
that haven only to be driven back to 
sea by another fierce gale which carried 
away hl» mainmast l«avlnK the craft al- 
most a helpless hulk. He was picked 
up by the steamer Washtenaw but iost 
again for a week, the eyes of the ship- 
ping world w«re centred on the Smith, 
buffetted and thrown around by the 
storm and a salvage prlie sought for by 
half a dozen valiant tow boat men. The 
Smith was finally rescued and towed to 
Heattle whll« her cargo was unloaded 
Into the Coburn which went back to 
Chemalnus to complete that part of her 
cargo which had been lost In the storm. 

Captain Murray of the Smith went 
out as master of the Coburn undaunted 
by his experiences * on the Smith. That 
Toyage of the Coburn was notable 
as being: a race betw<>#n that ship and 
tho big sevon-masted barkentlne Everett 
O. ariggrs, both being bound for South 
Africa, rteavy wagers were made ou 
the voyage and the barken tine won. 

There was keen rivalry ih^twntkn »h* 
masters and crews of th« two vesnels be- 
f.-re they left and when the son of 
Cm>t»tn Sterling of the Orlggs a^nouno- 
ed that he was going to instal wirelesi 
telegraph instruments on the fi)re-and- 
af ter, the Japanese coOk on the Coburn, 
who bad been In the signal service in

Desire pf Settlers in .Columbia- 
and Western Railway Area 

. —Government Official Back 
From Exploration Trip 

After spendtiif a couple of months 
exploring the. lands which formerly 
confltltuted the Columbia and Western 
Railway grant. Mr. H. K. RoblnBon, of 
the Provincial Forest Service, ha* re- 
turned here and will prepare an eatlm- 
ate of the value of the»e lands, ao far 
as their timber and ugrlcultural pos- 
alblUtles are concerned. Of their min- 
eral wealth Mr. Koblnson has nothing 
to say, as he iloes not profesa to be 
an authority on mlneraloglcal mat- 

The expedition cohaiated of Mr. Rob- 
inson with seven assistants and the 
necessary paclters and guides. During 
the six weeks they were in the flsld 
they covered about four hundred thou- 
sand acres. The weather was for the 
most part extremely disagreeable, 
and a number of private exploring 
parties which were operating in the 
same localities turned back for this 
rea.ion. Mr. Bobinson, however, per- 
force stuck to it until he had finished 
th<? undertaking committed to him, 
since the Minister of Lands especially 
desfFcancriiave "the Inrormation ias sonn 
as possible. 

It Is generally understood that the 
valuation to bo made as a result of 
thl.^ exploration and reconnaissance 
will have some considernble effect upon 
the negotiations which were not long 
ago instituted for th« purchase by the 
P^o\^nco of Mr. F. August Helnze's un- 
divided half Interest in these lands. 
Mr. Robinson- will report that while 
there, is a certain amount of timta«r on 
the land much of this tim-ber is rather 
Inaccessable, and considerable also that 
is covered by mineral claims. Non<> of 
the tlmher is at all equal to that found 
along the coast. 

There are also considerable patches 
of good agricultural land, but taken as 
a wholo it is rather poor territory. 
Among the people in the district there 
Is said to be a strong sentiment In 
favor of having the lands thrown open 
to pre-emption. 

The explorers experienced little dif- 
ficulty In getting around, apart from 
adverse weather conditions, as the 
country is networked with trails, and 
deserted shacks arc numerous. After 
completing their work, the party took 
their horses, about twenty In number, 
from Greenwood to V-ernon, a distance 
of about 130 miles, the Journey being 
accomplished In four and one-half 
days, this being the most pleasant por- 
tion of the trip. 



Hla liordahlp tha Blaliop of Columbia 

Spaak* of Haad of Workara 

for tba Olitizcb 

An interesting men's service was held 
at Christ Church Cathedral on Sunday 
afternoon under the auspices of the 
Church of England Men's Society. The 
clergy present were -His Lordship the 
Bishop of Columbia and Very Rev. 
Dean Doull, and the hymns sung Includ- 
ed, "Onward, Christian Soldiers." Th« 
Bishop, who was the preacher, took aa 
his text St. John, verses 13 and 14. "Ye 
call Me Lord and Master; and ye say 
well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord 
and Master, have washed your feet; ye 
also ought to wash one another's feet, 
for I have »ct you an example, that ye 
should do as I have done to you" His 
Lordship, who»« excellent disclosure 
was much appreciated by all who heard 
It, said that he was heart and soul In 
the C. E. M. S. Movement, and that both 
he and the clergy felt at the present 
time more than over before the need of 
men In the work of the church. "What 
would one think of an army that was 
simply made up of offleers, without any 
men. Very little could be accompllsh- 
PXi, and yet exactly similar conditions 
existed tn tho church today. He pointed 
out that one of the duties and privil- 
eges of a member of the C. E. M. 8. 
was that in cane of slckneaa or need he 
was able to take his minister's place at 
morning or evening service In out of 
the way and remote places. The work 
of the C. E. M. 8. was a wonderful and 
far reaching one, aomethlng for every- 
one to do. It might be a simple piece 
of worjt or it might toe an important 
one. but the little dally aervlce were the 
ones that so often counted — possibly not 
much noticed by others, but Indeed no- 
tlced and remembered by th«!r Lord and 
Master. A strong appeal was being 
made for men to do this wofk. The ca- 
thedral parish, said the Bishop, could 
easily find IBO or even more men, who 
would prove to be of much benefit to 
the Church and clergy In th«lr work, 
besides banding themselves into a 
brotherhood from tho Influences of 
which It was Impossible to say what 
beneftta micht not result. 

One vary human touch In the BUhop> 
•ermon was hla reforence to tho fact 
that ot>J«oU of the society wora work 
and aenrtce. almoat of any U,lnd, even to 
UshtlBC th« ehuroh ftreafor early morn- 
ing aervloes — a ttMk while Hla I<ordshi|> 
stated he had performed hundred of

Agreenient Regarding Faulty

.^.•cfrtalnJnr, throu»h the Mlnlater 
of public Works, that Ihere w»s no 
agreement betw««n the City of VJo- 
(fijrta and the ProvlncUl Government 
r««ardtur the laying of a pipe by the 
city througu to a i^rtlcular point In 
KsQulmalt, nam»ly, to Florence KoaU. 
w-hc"ebj' fonislderable nulaonce lias 
i: •;!• tccaaloned the realdents O'f the 
muulclpallty, and belnu dMfrous of dis- 
coverinK by wlmt aulliorlty the pipe 
was laid, so as to be in a poeltlon to 
have the present condition remedied, 
the Council of Esquimau retained In 
MC-rvloe th-e committee appointed to in- 
vestigate the nuitter and inatruoled Us 
members to Inatituie Inaulries at the 
Clty'a offloe«. 

The letter of the Minister stated 
speclficaaJy that there was no con- 
tract or agreranent between the City and 
the GovernnieiU reifHrding the pipe. 
"No asreoment or imderstandinie: ever 
existed between the city and the de- 
partment rt-gardlnsr the drainage of 
Skinner's Flats. On the contrary, the 
department ha.s protested from thru' to 
time ajrainst ■ certain works begins car- 
ried out in this connection." The illn- 
iat«r enclosed correspondence between 
his department nnd Mr. A. Smith, who 
was the City KnRlneer at that time, 
which showed that not only was there 
no agreement or contract but that 
there was no giving or accepting of 
authority on the clt>'a r-art in under- 
taiclng the work in question. 

Included in the corre-spondence was 
a letter from -the Minister of Public 
Works to Mr. Smith, acknowledging 
that ho was aware of the clt.V.s inten- 
tion to construct the Une and asking 
by what authority it was being done. 
The reply to this letter was that the 
city was desirous of relieving the low- 
lying lands In both the city and Esqui- 
mau district, and also that the whole 
expense was to be borne by the city. 
Ijeter, the Minister wrote another letter 
to Mr. Smith otringly protesting 
against tho unauthorized digging of an 
open ditch on Florence Street, as it 
was a menace to school children, and 
a barrier to traffic. Again the Min- 
ister wrote to the city official on the 
subject, asking what steps had been 
taken to repair the situation; but as 
the condition still exists the answer 
received Is Immaterial. 

Councillor .-Xnderson, who brought the 
matter up in the first instance, and 
wlao was a member of the committee 
appointed by the Council to look into 
the matter, stated that the arrangement 
appeared to be that the city ahould se- 
ctiTc tlie ip€riTilK.«lon of property owners. 
Xo doubt they did secure permission 
from some owners, but he was satisfied 
that they did not have the permission 
of the Hudson's Bay Company to dump 
stuff on their land as they had done. 

On the suggestion of Reeve Lugrln, 
the committee was asked to take up 
the matter with the city authorities.

The main contention between the- i:>o-

to tlie legislative control of fishing. It 
is claimed by the P"ederal authority

After Another Break, Lasting 
All 'Morning, Stocks Recov-

Believed to Have Set In 

NEW YORK, Dec. 10.— After another 
severe break, which forced quotations 
to a new low level for the iiroiracted 
Jownward movement, the stock ninrket 
rallied effectlvt?ly today. The opening 
was weak and throughout the mornInK 
there was a -steady stream of selling 
orders which at times almost demoraliz- 
ed the market. No effe<;tlve resistance 
was offered and stocks were unloaded 
in Increased voluni. 

Steel WH8 down to 64 1-8, Union Ta- 
i.lflc to 161, Reading to 165 1-i and 
.\mal)[famated a fraction. The less Ini- 
l)0rtar.t l.ssues declines were more se- 
vere extending: to 15 points* in I.iicka- 
w a nua.flnd .U.ia JSTaUonal Biscuit. 

The turn of the market came with the 
noon hour, and prices mounted steadily 
until Steel, Ripadlng and -ii number of 
"thor isucB showed net j^ain.s M a point 
IT more. Just before the the mar- 
ket heeamo heavy, altlioiiprh prices did 
not relap-se to tlie low point of the day. 

The recovery lii prices was regarded

Dr. Morse's IndUtn Root PItIs 
Hoalod Mr. Wilson's Soros 

When the sewers of the body — bowels, 
kidneys and skin ducts — get clogged up, 
the blood quickly becomes impure and 
frequently sores break out over the body. 
The way to heal them, as Mr. Richard 
Wilson, who lives near London, Oot., 
found, ia to purify the blood. He 

"For some time I had been in a low, 
depressed condition. My appetite left 
me and I soon began to suffer from indi- 
gestion. Quite a number of small soret 
and blotches formed all over my skin. I 
tried medicine for the blood and tued 
many kinds of ointments, but withont 
satisfactory results. WTiat was wanted 
was a thorough cleansing of the blood, 
and I looked about in vain for aome medi- 
cine that would accomplish this. 

At last Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pilh 
were brought to my notice, and they ara 
one of the most wtmderful medicinal I 
have ever knoira. Vy blood was puri- 
fied in « very short time, sores healed up, 
my indigesdcn vanished. They always 
have a place in my home and are looked 
upon as the family remedy." 

Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills cleanse 
the system thoroughly. Sold by all 
dealers at 25c a box.
